In 2015, Fortis Property Group laid out plans to redevelop the Long Island College Hospital property, located on several blocks in Cobble Hill. One proposal was for as-of-right development, while the other required an individual rezoning, approved through the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP). The developer has decided to move forward with the as-of-right plan, which will not include any affordable residential units, Politico reported.
Plans for the mixed-use project weren’t revealed with the latest decision, but it’s been previously reported that the as-of-right version could include as much as 528,935 square feet of residential space, 262,555 square feet of community facility space, and 23,375 square feet of public space.
Plans are already underway to develop eight four-story townhouses at 88-96 Amity Street, a five-story NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Clinic at 70 Atlantic Avenue, and to convert the eight-story building at 350 Henry Street into 17 residential units.
